Searching for the right cooking soundtrack

Had to find just the right tunes while I was frying up some chicken (see below), a labor of love, especially considering it was a rare sweltering summer day. If you can call the mid-70s sweltering.

Turned to my Memphis collection and came up with William Lee Ellis -- "God's Tattoos" -- and Daddy Mack's "Slow Ride", a seasoned bluesman doing covers of rock classics, my buddy Billy Gibson doing his magical thang on the harp. Couldn't find "Electric Watermelon", though. The North Mississippi Allstars latest is likely in Baby Girl's messy room, as she decided she loves this funky roots blues band. Especially the super cute drummer, Cody.

What do you like to listen to while you're in the kitchen?

Mostly, The Swing Years and Beyond. Best soundtrack for cooking dinner. If not that, an eclectic mix of whatever spits out of iTunes.
